Better Lovers Announce Inaugural ‘BLissmas’ Holiday Show With It Dies Today, The Callous Daoboys & More


With a sizable chunk of the late Every Time I Die among their lineup, it’s only natural that Better Lovers would resurrect some of the aforementioned metalcore outfit’s past activities. Every Time I Die sadly played their final live appearance at the 2021 edition of their annual ‘Tid’ The Season‘ holiday celebration.

This year will find Better Lovers reviving that event in their own way. The band, who feature Every Time I Die veterans Jordan Buckley (guitars), Stephen Micciche (bass) & Clayton “Goose” Holyoak (drums), alongside ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc. vocalist Greg Puciato and Fit For An Autopsy, etc. guitarist Will Putney, have announced their first annual ‘BLissmas‘. That event will once again be held in Buffalo, NY, taking over the Town Ballroom on December 08th.

In addition to Better Lovers, sets from It Dies Today, The Callous Daoboys, Greyhaven and Spaced have also been booked. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, October 06th at 10:00am EDT.

Better Lovers commented:

“We are proud to announce BLissmas! Our 1st annual holiday show/festival! We couldn’t be more excited to perform, host and welcome everyone to Buffalo in December once again. Being back on the road this year and talking to all of you, we realized how much this weekend means to everyone and it became a tradition that was dearly missed by many. This band had its first ever practice, songs written, and shows played, in Buffalo. This show is special to us, and it’s special to the city.

We will host a toy drive for Toys For Tots, a non-profit public charity that distributes toys to less fortunate children. We encourage attendees to donate a new, unwrapped toy in exchange for a free gift at our merch table.

We thank It Dies Today, The Callous Daoboys, Greyhaven, and Spaced for being part of this inaugural show, and we can’t wait to kick this off and watch it grow for years to come.”
